Men face particular challenges when it comes to managing their health. One of the biggest hurdles is the time involved – many men simply don’t want to spend their time waiting in a doctor’s surgery. On top of this, many healthcare services and messages are geared towards women, making men feel they don’t fit in. There are many other reasons why men may not feel comfortable visiting a GP, but the bottom line is things need to change. The importance of seeing your doctor regularly for preventative health checks cannot be overemphasised.
